About Sheila & Steve - Casa Estrella
We are originally from Glasgow. We bought our lovely house in 2013 and completely reformed many aspects of it whilst retaining the original features. Our children have also loved living in Spain and helping with our rental business.
Sheila & Steve - Casa Estrella purchased this Villa in 2013
Why Sheila & Steve - Casa Estrella chose Jumilla
We love the house and the area. The people are warm and friendly. This is an area of Spain that is much loved by people who come to visit. It is also unspoiled and unchanged and is very authentic and traditional. The local Spanish people are delighted to welcome visitors and are proud of their lifestyle, culture, cuisine and traditions.

We booked this holiday 13 months ago and from their initial response, Steve and Shelia have been so very helpful in offering lots of advice to us. We had 11 people in our party, ranging from 12 years to 75 years. We knew this holiday was going to be different to our others, as we would be so far from the coast. We were greeted by Steve at the airport, and taken on the 50 minute journey to Jumilla. We arrived at the villa to meet Shelia who proudly showed us around and presented us with a lovely welcome pack of food, wine and toiletries. This villa is stunning and has kept lots of the features of the original bodega. The pool was bigger than we had expected and the outdoor dining area was fantastic! Indeed, we had several bbqs during our 10 days here, which were lots of fun! Shelia and Steve suggested and booked restaurants for us, when we asked, and they did not fail to disappoint. Our first experience was in a small bar, where we ate and drank for €10 each!! During our stay one of our party needed to visit the doctor and again Shelia and Steve helped us, indeed Shelia stayed with us until we were seen and helped to translate for us. We also were fortunate enough to take part in the fiesta in Jumilla during our stay, which involves watching parades, fireworks, sampling many wines and having wine poured over us...wear a white t-shirt for this event!! This was one of the most relaxing, authentic and enjoyable holidays we have ever been on. Steve and Shelia are amazing and simply want you to enjoy their town and villa as much as they clearly do. We only arrived home yesterday and are already trying to work out how we can go back again very soon. A true gem of a villa...shhhh, we don’t want too many people to know about it!!

The best holiday I have ever had!
We stayed at Casa Estella for 11 nights and honestly had the best holiday ever.
This was the first time my family have stayed in a villa.
Steve met us at the airport and took us back to the house where Sheila was waiting to welcome us. The moment we arrived we realised that the size and beauty of the house and grounds simply cannot be captured in pictures.
We stayed with three different groups of friends and their families over the course of our 11 nights and each said how stunning the house was.
Nothing was too much trouble for Sheila and Steve and they were available at all times. In fact we welcomed their company as they are both so lovely! Casa Estrella has everything you need and more.
The house is so relaxing and the views are beautiful. Sheila and Steve had some large speakers for us to use which we plugged our music into and the noise could not be heard by the kids sleeping upstairs.
Both Jumilla and Pinoso are a short drive away. We ate in both towns. Food was really tasty and bill so cheap! We attended a fiesta that Sheila suggested and loved seeing the real Spain.
We arrrived back last nite and planning next year at Casa Estella. Thank you Sheila and Steve.
Thank you so much for this wonderful review! We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your holiday at Casa Estrella so much. We were so happy to welcome you and your lovely family and friends. We look forward to seeing you again.

We've enjoyed a terrific holiday in Steve and Sheila's lovely home between Pinoso and Jumilla
Having never visited mainland Spain for a family holiday before, we were taken aback by the spectacular landscape surrounding the wonderful Casa Estrella. The views from the spacious property were enjoyed throughout, particularly whilst making the most of the great swimming pool, lovingly maintained by Steve each norning. The house itself had everything we needed and more and there were really nice personal touches we appreciated. We were a family of four but the Casa could easily house much bigger groups with loads of room to spare. The highlights of the holiday were watching the clearest night skies you can imagine, shooting stars aplenty and enjoying the many festivities in the town of Jumilla as our trip coincided with their Summer fiesta. It was really good. We drove to the coast (approx 1 hour 15 minutes) a couple of times to enjoy lovely beaches with plenty of room and also enjoyed trips to Murcia which is a very nice city. We strongly recommend this terrific property and area as ones that will provide you with a great holiday experience and in Steve and Sheila you will benefit from really helpful and considerate owners. We had a really good time. Thanks!
Thank you so much for this amazing review. We are delighted you had a great holiday, enjoyed the lovely area and felt comfortable and relaxed in Casa Estrella. It was a pleasure to meet you all and we are delighted to hear that you have had a great experience staying with us.

Perfect relaxing haven
I have just returned feom a truly memorable and relaxing week at this lovely villa.The area surrounding the property is truly stunning with contrasting mountains and flat farm land groaning with fruit.If you are looking for great and very inexpensive Spanish food and lovely local wines then you are just a short drive away to two fair size towns with all the shops and eating facilities you would require.There is also a local market there once per week.
The villa itself delivered on every front and is exactly as described.It is beautifully furnished with just the right balance of quirky, traditional and modern.Sheila and Steve have provided everything you could possibly need and then some.
The outside space is just as stunning as inside ,perhaps even more so.The centre space is occupied by a beautiful pool which has easy and safe access and a shallow end for less confident swimmers.There are plenty of sun beds and chairs round the pool and a lovely shaded area if you prefer.
Sheila and Steve could not be more kind or helpful,the perfect hosts.Our holiday was meticulously planned with their help and advice and nothing was too much bother.All in all we had an amazing holiday in this home away from home and would thoroughly recommend it.
Thank you so much Pauline for such a wonderful review. We are absolutely delighted you enjoyed your holiday and Casa Estrella and that you loved all that this very lovely part of Spain has to offer. Best wishes Sheila & Steve
Great house, all the facilities you could ask for. Stunning location with wonderful restaurants nearby. Very Spanish area . We were a party of seven women on our annual getaway week and really enjoyed our stay. Sheila and Steve organised taxis for us when we went out, and we spent a lot of time round the pool. The house is spacious, well set out and very comfortable. We will be back!
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your holiday at Casa Estrella and we look forward to welcoming you again. best wishes Sheila & Steve
Sensational villa, sensational sunny weather
This is the second time I have stayed at the villa. As before, the weather was sensational - only equalled by the sensational facilities the villa offers. Excellent for a relaxing break, it offers too many facilities for me to mention here. Great for a family reunion or groups of friends. And large enough not to be tripping over each other! Peaceful and secluded, it is however within reach (short drive) of local villages and restaurants.. using taxis or sometimes Shiela and Steve actually drove us there!
Now i need to gather the family together to plan another reason to visit this lovely villa !
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Casa Estrella. best wishes Sheila & Steve
The house is on the border between Alicante & Murcia. Casa Estrella is equidistant between two towns Jumilla which is Murcia and is known nationally and internationally for its wine and food. Pinoso which is in Alicante has always been one of Spain's wealthier towns because of locally sourced marble from "Marble Mountain". The welcome in both towns and in the local village & town bars and restaurants is always friendly and authentic.
We have free WiFi and great internet access. The property is traditional in that it has great character but provides modern luxurious living. Casa Estrella is 35 minutes from the beach and we have a large private swimming pool and sunbathing areas for our guests to enjoy. We offer a fabulous welcome pack including local wines, beers and cava. We are happy to arrange any services to improve your holiday experience. Casa Estrella is the perfect getaway but also close to so many fabulous Spanish experiences.
